What is MailWasher?  (from FireTrust Limited)

MailWasher works directly with your email server, exactly like your email program does. But there is one important difference: you can tell MailWasher to delete a message at the server, without downloading it.


MailWasher is a program developed by FireTrust Limited. The most used version is 7.3.0, with over 98% of all installations currently using this version. Upon installation and setup, it defines an auto-start registry entry which makes this program run on each Windows boot for all user logins. A scheduled task is added to Windows Task Scheduler in order to launch the program at various scheduled times (the schedule varies depending on the version). The main program executable is MailWasher.exe. The software installer includes 61 files and is usually about 19.23 MB (20,168,569 bytes). In comparison to the total number of users, most PCs are running the OS Windows 7 (SP1) as well as Windows 10. While about 43% of users of MailWasher come from the United States, it is also popular in United Kingdom and Netherlands.
